Build a Tallneck with the Horizon Forbidden West Lego set

The first-ever Horizon Forbidden West Lego set is on the way. The kit features a model of a Tallneck, a machine from the Horizon universe that players can scale to see nearby areas. The set is the result of a collaboration between Lego and Guerrilla Games and features a whopping 1,222 pieces total. It will release in May of this year and will retail for $80.

In a press release, Lego shared that the Tallneck model will be over 13.5 inches high and nine inches wide, making it over a foot tall. Included in the box are all the components needed to build the Tallneck, as well a new head block and weapon for main character Aloy and a small model of the Watcher reconnaissance machine.

The kit also includes a few environmental details around its base, including a buildable tree, grass, and a rusty stoplight, enabling players to model their build after Horizon Forbidden West‘s lush world. According to Isaac Snyder, a designer at Lego, the model incorporates “references to all the most iconic aspects of Horizon Forbidden West, from incredible machines, mysterious ruins, unique tribes, and stunning scenery.”

Horizon Forbidden West launches this Friday for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. In our review, we praised the game for its strong combat and interesting world, as well as its beautiful visuals. While it does have a few missteps, it’s still a shining example of Sony’s first-party prowess. The Lego kit looks to take everything that players love about the world of  Horizon and allow them to build it themselves, brick by brick.

Every Legendary weapon in Horizon Forbidden West and how to get them

Both Horizon games are RPGs, though more focused on the action aspects by far. In the first game, Aloy had a very simple RPG progression system. There were a few simple skill trees, and new weapons and armor sets to unlock, buy, and earn through quests, plus some minor alterations you could do to customize them. With Horizon Forbidden West, not only has the action been cranked up to a new level but so have the role-playing elements, specifically with loot. This game has a full-on looter tier system ranging from common weapons all the way up to the most powerful and unique Legendary tier of items.

Legendary weapons in Horizon Forbidden West won't just drop out in the world. Even the toughest enemies you can face in the wild have no chance to drop a Legendary weapon, and not even the main quest will reward you with the most powerful arsenal Aloy can get. These unique weapons of which there are only nine, one for each weapon type, have very specific requirements to earn that can be the most challenging tasks in the entire game. If you want to be the most deadly robot dinosaur hunter possible, we'll show you all the Legendary weapons in Horizon Forbidden West and how you can get them.

Horizon Forbidden West: All War Totem locations

Aloy is no stranger to picking up all sorts of random junk in Horizon Forbidden West. Whether it's sticks and rocks for crafting, or ancient relics from the world prior to the robotic uprising, you'll be stopping every couple of steps to grab something in the massive open world. Collectibles are essentially mandatory for open-world games, and the Horizon series continues to hide a bunch of these secret trinkets across the map in the sequel, but with far more variety and types this time around.

Right alongside collectibles, Easter eggs are another common features developers like to tuck away in hidden corners of their open worlds. Sony's first-party studios have lately been using Easter eggs as a way to give a friendly nod to their sibling studios, such as Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart featuring Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper through a secret weapon. Horizon Forbidden West is the latest major first-party release and has made a few references to another major franchise in the form of three collectible War Totem Easter egg items.
